Conservative politicians in the United Kingdom have expressed concern over the drafted World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty and the planned amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR).

“Ministers are understood to be alarmed by plans to increase the WHO’s powers enabling its governing body to require countries to hand over the recipe of vaccines, regardless of intellectual property rights, and to counter misinformation,” The Telegraph reports.

A group of Conservative MPs has reportedly written a letter to ministers warning about evident ambition “for the WHO to transition from an advisory organisation to a controlling international authority.”

According to The Telegraph, they urged the UK Foreign Office to stop powers that “appear to intrude materially into the UK’s ability to make its own rules and control its own budgets.”
